too much. about two-thirds said raising taxes to cut the deficit was a nonstarter. and compared to obamacare, which more voters actually said they wanted to repeal, these levels of support are striking. so if our friends on the other side want to keep trying to claim an electoral mandate for maintaining obamacare contradicted by the facts as that phaoeurbgs while using their own logic we had to call the mandate for reducing the size of government a super mandate. that's why their new plan to undo the cuts the president campaigned on and increase the debt is so outrageous. we hear that the senior senator from new york will soon announce a proposal to give the permanent -- give the president permanent power to borrow more. in other words, he wants to extend the debt ceiling permanently by going around congress. let me repeat that. the so-called schumer-obama plan is a plan to permanently hand the president a credit card without spending limits and without lifting a finger to address the national debt. truly outrageous, especially when you consider that our debt is now $17 trillion
create jobs, reduce our bunt deficit, including -- budget deficit, including a pathway to citizenship, unite families, it would help reflect values as americans in our immigration laws, grow the economy, create jobs for americans here at home. and finally get real about enforcing our immigration laws. do you realize, mr. speaker, there are over 10 million people in this country illegally? when are we going to get serious about enforcing our laws and not making a mockery of them? this nation is a nation based on the rule of law. h.r. 15 reflects that commitment as does the senate immigration bill. it's time that we fix our broken immigration system rather than go home on a wednesday and meet for 19 days in a 63-day period. this is a bipartisan bill. h.r. 15. we have been joined by several republicans representative denham, representative ros-lehtinen. we encourage my colleagues, i certainly invite my friend and colleague from texas to join us as a co-sponsor of this bill that will allow us to create enforcement, a pathway to citizenship, grow jobs, and finally resolve our broken immigr
together. if you have revenue on the table, you come to a bigger agreement to reduce the deficit, to grow the economy, to do so in a fiscally sound way. if you don't have revenue on the table, we've cut -- it's important to note that going into this debate they say there should be more cuts. there's been $2.4 trillion in deficit reduction. $600 billion of that has been from the expiration of the high-end bush tax cuts. $600 billion. $1.8 trillion have come from cuts. there's hardly any other place to go but nonetheless subject every federal dollar to scrutiny. cut where you can cut if it's d duplicative or whatever. do not say we're going to give tax breaks to the wealthy while it makes seniors may more for medicare as it voucherizes medicare. >> do you think in this process there'll be some flexibility on the sequester? i know there have been some who want to just do away with sequester. senator joe manchin and others are looking at can we have more flexibility. what's your position on that? >> if we have sequester we have to have the flexibility. and what senator manchin is putting fort
is the debt clock. here it comes. there it goes. do you see the numbers? the deficit fell to $680 billion, the first time in five years it went under a trillion. how do you balance awful that debt, that big number with the deficit going down? they say the deficit will go up. how do they finally solve this? >> well, republicans and some democrats also say that entitlements are going to have to be dealt with in some capacity because of the baby boom generation. the debt clock could get higher in years to come. one way or another medicare and social security at some point will have to be dealt with. the interesting thing here, eric is in the first term on the debt fights, president obama was really leading the charge. this time around it is harry reid and nancy pelosi and less so president obama. they both said, listen, we are not going to be dealing on social security, at least not at this stage. they are insisting on new tax revenues. that's the rub. i don't think there will beal re soon. there will be another showdown that goes down to the wire. >> you talk about entitlements. some peopl
the deficit. that is one of the biggest whoppers among a bunch of lies, but the biggest whopper is president obama saying it would reduce the deficit. i think it will add trillions to the deficit. >> we have been following it. remember, they said it would be so easy to use. premiums would decrease. we know that is not true either. you can keep your doctor. if you like your plan you can keep your plan. it will only be $900 billion. tell me if i'm wrong in my analysis, senator. i see that the president pretty much had three options. once, this was the holy grail for the left for a long time. progressives have wanted this for a long time. but if they knew the truth about the effects, that it wouldn't garner enough votes in congress. so they had three choices, the first was to tell the truth and push for the program anyway, the second was to change the program and address the concerns, and the third would be to lie. >> i think as disengene disinge nicer way of saying a lie, they say if you're going to lose your insurance, you lose your plan. he said no, if you have your doctor, you have your ins

. joblessness not deficits is the greatest crisis. that doesn't seem to be part of the beltway discussion except for those that don't have power. the tea party, i think you're right, has lost a lot of its power, which is the beginning of possibility. >> you wanted to get in on that last point about revenue versus entitlement programs, social safety net, earned benefit programs, whatever, however you want to characterize them. i'll let you go ahead. >> we have to keep in mind, it matters not at all what tom cole, john boehner says, mitch mcconnell says, because nobody listen toss them. i don't care if tom cole is moderate or whatever he is, or john boehner, like he says, we're not going to shut down the government. the pocket of conservatives running the house republican conference don't listen to what their leadership says. tom cole could want to raise tax toss 50% and that doesn't really make a difference. >> you're saying no lessons have been learned since the shutdown. the orientation of power has shifted even further toward the right towards the tea party. >> i think it has. i think some peo
's health. the fourth issue she brought up was the deficit and aca may contribute. guest: the cbo scored that it would actually decrease the deficit. this law, if anything, reduces the deficit or is budget neutral. one of the ideas behind the law is we are going to bring health- care cost under control. we have seen the increase of health care costs start to decline, which is a good sign. that is a huge issue. unless we can stop premiums and costs generally from going up, five percent, 6%, seven percent, every year, we will have spiraling costs. >> do you think social security -- host: aaron smith, do you think social security will be around by the time you get to a retirement age? guest: i am hopeful. i think it will be. it is something that has been a red rock in this country. it is something my parents and grandparents relied on. it is something we are all paying into. so far, i have seen a lot of support, actually, and a lot of opposition to attempts to roll that back. when we have talked to young people about social security -- you definitely hear this skepticism about whether it wi
a huge long-term deficit problem. if you wait until 2017, it means you're going to hope nothing bad happens, no recessions. seven years of recovery, a lot of jobs created, everything built into the cbo forecast which i think is a rosy scenario. so i think we're drifting into danger. and yet, unless they do something now, how can anything be done? >> how would you fix it? if there's no new revenue, how do you fix it? >> you have to have a massive demobilization of this war machine. we don't need it any longer. >> even keeping the country safe in this environment? >> of course we can keep the country safe on $400 billion a year. we don't need $600 billion. bill clinton was keeping the country safe on $400 billion. second, we have to means test the entitlements. there is nothing in the trust funds. that's confetti. we have to means test and go for the affluent recipient, reduce his benefits under medicare and social security and then finally we need to have some more revenue, but it's going to be hard to find. >> well, there's a lot of money sitting offshore that's not taxed. that's fo

the deficit by $110 billion in the first decade and close to a trillion dollars in the second decade. we know we have 42 or 43 million americans without health care, some medicaid eligible and some over the medicaid eligibility. 30 governors so far, republicans and democrats, have declared their support with moving ahead with medicaid expansion, but absent the affordable care act, those folks would be without any kind of health security, and in the private market, what we know is it takes a real toll. but i'd say the biggest issue is not just the financial toll, not the community toll, not the country toll, which is significant. i have a good friend who runs the cancer center at the university of kansas. i was with him and cancer researchers recently, and he said if you get a cancer diagnosis, you are 60% more likely to live five years and beyond if you have insurance than if you don't. i think that's a pretty powerful statement for why we need affordable health care for all of our citizens. >> well, thank you. the republicans have not been able to defund or repeal it, but they have denied re
